We learned back in February of this year that Artsploitation Films would be releasing the Korean anthology Horror Stories (review here) this year, and now the day has arrived!
From the Press Release:
Horror anthologies are creeping up everywhere, and the Korean entry Horror Stories raises the bar with four terrifying stories (and a nail-biting wraparound tale), each one chilling enough to be its own feature. If you thought this was going to be a tame collection of teen-friendly “ghost girl” stories – think again. Horror Stories, out on DVD Tuesday, October 8th, goes right for the jugular with non-stop splatter, intense shocks, and riveting suspense.
A high school girl is abducted and forced by a psycho to tell him the scariest tales she knows:
• “Don’t Answer the Door” finds a little brother and sister home alone at night and
• “Endless Flight” has a serial killer escaping police custody in the middle of an otherwise
• “Secret Recipe” serves up a wildly macabre fairy tale about two jealous stepsisters who
take plastic surgery to nightmarish extremes.
• “Ambulance on the Death Zone” is a claustrophobic zombie shocker with a paramedic and
a mother at a standoff over her possibly infected young daughter.
An international genre festival success from Sitges to Fantasia, this is one of the best Korean horror films in years and has been called “one of the scariest Asian horror anthologies of the 21st century.”
The segments, written by Bum-shik Jung, Dae-woong Lim, Kyoung-eui Lee, Hae-ju Byun, Gok Kim, and Sun Kim, are directed by Bum-shik Jung, Dae-woong Lim, Ji-young Hong, Gok Kim, and Sun Kim. Horror Stories stars Bo-Ra Nam, Hyeon-Soo Kim, Ji-Young Kim, Tai-Hyun Zin, and Soo-Bin Bae.
